Projects / TVheadend


Tvheadend is a streaming server/relay supporing a variety of sources and multiple output formats. It is primarily intended to be used for receiving TV (DVB, Analog, IPTV) and to transmit it using a number of different output formats to subscribers. Together with powerful DVR (Digital Video Recorder) features, an advanced EPG and a web-interface it can be used as a TV distribution hub.

        Release Notes: A major (if not complete) rewrite. Tvheadend now completely relies on the Web interface for configuration; no more setting files. During the rewrite, both analog and IPTV support have been temporarily removed. The RTSP and XBMSP output streaming support have also been removed. DVB-T/C/S is currently the only available input source. HTSP (for playback to HTS Showtime) and the Digital Video Recorder are the only available output. On the upside, the infrastructure is now multi-threaded to leverage modern multi-core systems.
